Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) asked the U.S. attorney general to crack down on leaks such as one about the FBI investigation into the alleged leak of a classified document to AIPAC. “I know AIPAC. I know its integrity,” Specter said of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-Israel lobbying group. “It’s a smear.” Specter made the comments Wednesday to JTA at the Republican convention in New York, after attending a session with AIPAC leaders.
